Range Rover Classic – Waxoyl Pf For Cavities

Waxoyl Pf For Cavities

Rust. I feel like it’s a constant battle with my Land Rover collection. The oldest rig I have is this 1991 Range Rover Classic. It has rust, they all do. I’m trying to contain it and prevent the expansion of it.

Rust forms from oxidation. Meaning, oxygen and water form and creates oxidation. That produces a reaction which forms iron oxide, called ferric oxide, also known as rust!

I’ve used fluid film quite extensively on the rovers. However, I always wanted to use Waxoyl but couldn’t find it in the United States. Little did I know, Rovers North stocks it!

My primary goal was to get the inside cavity of the doors and the boot (trunk) area. This mists in, much like a fog, filling those voids. I have an issue with the passenger driver’s side door that was my primary goal.

At some point, someone drilled a hole in the door and probably injected it with some cavity fill. It’s evident because of the plug in the hole and no other doors have it.  I can leverage this hole, on the offending door.

I’ll tackle other areas as well, such as the actual frame, the boot area, and any other area I can soak. I’m being very liberal with the application.

A few notes:

  • Best practice would be to buy this in bulk and use a gu, requiring I purchase a compressor and gun.
  • I didn’t want to spend $300+, so for this initial round, I’m working with the spray cans.
  • The hard body wax, which I will use on the underbody, is black. A future video will show this.
